Early voting for the upcoming election is officially open.
The Winnebago County election office told Eyewitness News that 50 people went in to cast their ballots so far. But, they’ve fielded many more requests for absentee ballots. Due to the high interest of this year’s presidential election, the county says it expects a large turnout this year.
You can vote early up until November 7th, which is the last day before the election.
